Between SPbU and NovSU a preliminary agreement has been reached on cooperation in the field of research activities.

A control sample is selected for the Project study

During April, Tartu University staff selected an extensive control group of people of Russian ethnicity for research conducted in the framework of the Project. All of them are donors of the Estonian Genomic Center Biobank at the University of Tartu (EGCUT). Throughout the time since the material was taken, the state of donors’ health was continuously monitored, which completely eliminated the presence of pathologies such as type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
